In India we are more caste-ridden than ever and I fear that kind of factionalism will overtake us

Raja Ramanna (Indian Physicist)

I am an advaita man who has now shifted to Buddhist philosophy, which just teaches you to live a good life. I believe in a force.

I always remember the days of the Holocaust when Jews were massacred by the Nazis. In India we are more caste-ridden than ever and I fear that kind of factionalism will overtake us.

Don't forget... that our program, our interest in atomic energy... goes back to a time when even the... Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs had not been exploded. 

Raja Ramanna (Indian Physicist)

Well, the major goals of India's atomic energy program, right from the beginning, has been the development of nuclear power... and, the use of isotopes... for medicine, agriculture, and industry. But, above all, the people who originated our program knew that in a country like India, a developing country like India, atomic energy could become the springboard for modern technology, and this is not fully appreciated.

The Indian atomic energy program... many people don't know this, starts even before... the nuclear explosions that were used to destroy Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Dr. Bhabha was a visionary. He had excellent command over electronics, physics and he saw the dream of India being a nuclear power. … He was a perfectionist and would leave no point of suspicion while working on any project. He was an inspiration.

Rajamma, my aunt, often told me stories from the Puranas. That was the best education I ever received.

This remarkable [nuclear] energy is spreading its tentacles to almost all walks of life - be it power, agriculture, medicine, laser systems, satellite imagery or environment protection.

We belong to Dr (Homi) Bhabha's school of thought, you see. We are disciplined to take up any challenge.

Dr Bhabha taught us to be ageless. So here I am, working more than 12 hours a day, pooh-poohing failing health

Talking about scientific experiments of our time won't be an easy task. I am an old man with a failing memory. In fact, I can't even recall my career chart these days. 

Homi Sethna (Indian Nuclear Scientist)

I won't be able to give you any periodic account of events. For, time has erased the dates from my mind. Whatever I say will be an old man's way of recounting the past.

Homi Sethna (Indian Nuclear Scientist)

Panditji was a person who firmly believed in science and technology. But, he had one reservation, as far as nuclear energy went, and that is it should be used only, and repeat only, for peaceful purposes.

Homi Sethna (Indian Nuclear Scientist)

From the data which was available for reprocessing, available in literature... was totally incorrect. I can assure you, if we had followed that data, nothing would have worked.
